The pot stocks still have the potential for growth and the legal marijuana industry is expected to increase in 2019. While on one hand pot stocks have not performed up to the expectations set in the last year and the stock prices have gone down after a surge in local pot stocks on the new year beginning in 2018. On the other side, Mark Bernberg an investment strategist has launched the first cannabis investment consultancy in Australia, which according to him is a Green Fund.
According to research, the sales of medical Cannabis are expected to reach $75 billion by 2030. And investors could make huge gains in this space. However, some analysts have different view on the green rush and state that the cannabis industry is a small area which became a talking point for some time and is now fading away. Especially after the legalization of the same in Canada, the focus shifted from Australia.
As the relaxation continues in the Americas, the popular view is that it is the right time to invest in Cannabis stocks. Other than Australia few others in Asia Pacific region like South Korea and Thailand have also followed the same path of legalizing medical cannabis. Few of the stocks in this industry in Australia are as follows.
